Name: Date: Period: Table #: Come Fly with Me Lab QUESTION - How does the weight of paper affect how long a paper airplane will fly? HYPOTHESIS:_________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________ PROCEDURES 1. Select three different types of paper and cut them so they are all the same size. 2. Fold the papers into airplanes. Make sure they are all folded the same way. 3. Launch each airplane three different times. The same person should launch the airplane each time to ensure the same force is used for all trials. 4. Using the data chart, record the time (in seconds) the airplane traveled. DATA CHART Type of paper Trial 1 Trial 2 Trial 3 Average Newspaper Printer paper Notebook paper CONCLUSION: Remember that your conclusion should explain your results and how they relate to your hypothesis. Follow Up Questions: 1. Identify the independent variable and explain why you chose that as your answer? 2. Identify the dependent variable and explain why you chose that as your answer? 3. What were some control variables? 4. Explain why a scientist needs control variables when doing an experiment. 5. How could you make this lab even more accurate? For the next 3 answers fill in the chart: 6. From the data what should be the claim? 7. What is the evidence? Name: Date: Period: Table #: 8. What is your reasoning? 9. Claim: Write a statement that responds to the hypothesis. Evidence: Provide scientific data to support your claim. Your evidence should be appropriate and sufficient (meaning you should supply enough evidence to convince someone your claim is correct) Reasoning: Use scientific principles and knowledge that you have about why your evidence supports your claims (how does your data prove your point) GRAPH: Using the average time for each airplane create a bar graph on graph paper and staple to the back of this sheet. The graph MUST include a key, 3 different bars that are done in 3 different colors, and the X-axis and Y-axis labeled.
